    I have a friend with one with a three on the tree and all the shift linkage is worn out, where can I find replacement parts? also is there a two piece driveshaft? if so would a bad bearing at the split cause a vibration? one more thing where should the timing be? 283 cid

    yup, a bad bearing could be the culprit.

    don't know about the linkage. There are some bushings that could be worn
  3. Timing depends on a lot of variables. Start at 18 btdc and go from there.

    Yes it is a 2-piece driveshaft. A drivetrain vibration on these cars is likely the Carrier Bearing. While replacing it, also do all 3 (!) u-joints. Classic Industries is one source.

    I've got a 64 belair, bought a lot from Ecklers.Just google it.
  11. Lutty's out of PA. They have tons of Impala parts. I used them for my 1963 Impala SS resto. Also there is Hubbards. Both are vendors at Spring and Fall Carlisle. A good national club is VCCA; Vintage Chevorlet Culb of Amreica. Good .02.

  17. Chevy dealers used to stock a GM kit with everything needed to rebuild the column shift. It was a big job, the last one I did was on a 3-on-the-tree Chevy truck and the whole column had to come out.

    I'm sure one of the sources above has it for the '64.

    best replacements parts around,

    there located in southern California and have on-line catalogs, mail order or walk in service.
    I use them all the time for my projects.
    They should be able to help with the linkage but the bearing can be purchased from pepboys, o'rielly's or most any other auto parts store.
    :D hope that helps.
